[Actualización] The main operators confirm that Internet access and its services have returned to normal operation after a failure in the backbone infrastructure of the fiber optic network that occurred this morning.
Since early this morning, a massive internet crash in Spain that affects the main operators of our country, including names such as Movistar, Vodafone, Orange, Jazztel and Yoigo, among others. This has given rise to connection problems that affect a significant number of users, although not all cities in our country have been affected equally.
At the time of writing this article we have been able to see, thanks to the Downdetector service, that problem notifications to Vodafone, Orange, Jazztel, Simyo, Movistar, Lowi and Yoigo have recorded several peaks, and that they still remain at high values. However, as we have previously indicated, not all communities have been affected in the same way, and everything seems to indicate that the most affected areas are in Madrid, Murcia, Valencia, Almería, Granada and Barcelona.
We still do not have an explanation of what has happened, but everything seems to indicate that this massive drop in the Internet in Spain it would be motivated by cuts and failures in the networks on which these operators rely. We know that the affected companies are already working on a solution, and that the service should be restored throughout the morning, although they have not specified any time, so if you have been affected, be patient, since there is nothing you can do do to fix it.
Through the accounts that these operators have on Twitter you can find more information about the situation in which these incidents are found. I can confirm that a few minutes ago there were still reports of Vodafone users still having problems, and both Orange and Movistar are still They have not posted anything to indicate that they have resolved the situation.
In any case, if these incidents do not have a serious origin, they should be resolved in a few hours at most. If they have a certain severity, the resolution time could vary greatly depending on the entity of the cause, so what has been said, patience, there is no other.
